How a Volvo VN is Built

14. At a point where the two assembly lines merge, the cab is hoisted in the air and set gently down on the frame and is bolted in place. Electrical, air and liquid fittings are connected as the cab becomes one with the chassis.

Equipment Editor Jim Park takes us on a tour of Volvo Trucks North America's New River Valley truck assembly plant in Dublin, Va. Shown are a few key steps in the assembly process, from welding the cab together to the finished product driving off the assembly line under its own power.

HDT 2013 Truck Fleet Innovator Joe Cowan

Cowan was running his father's company's public warehouse operation, and within that entity started a small irregular route truckload business — the kernel from which his current company, Cowan Systems, was grown.

Early on, Joe Cowan had his sights set on football. He had a chance to play for the Baltimore Colts, but could not forget another dream he'd had since he was a boy.

“When you're a kid, you're so proud of what your father created,” he says. His father, W.T. Cowan, had founded and built a less-than-truckload business that served the Mid-Atlantic out of Baltimore.
